A two-year-old prospective pupil has been devoured by ten dogs belonging to a private school in Amokpo, Umuanunwa, Nteje in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The child was said to have been taken to the school for enrollment by his parent when the incident happened.

The school owner, identified as Chinedu Oka, a UK returnee, reportedly reared dogs in the school premises, despite the community’s warning against it.

A resident who preferred anonymity told newsmen that the child’s parent was perfecting the documentation and registration of the child when he strayed away where he was devoured by the dog s.

He said, “The parent was busy with the child’s registration when he wandered off where the dogs, ten in number rushed at him, dragged him into their pen and devoured him with nobody on sight to rescue him.

“It’s a taboo to rear dog s here and the owner was warned, but he didn’t heed to the community’s instructions.”

The youths in the community quickly invaded the school compound and shot the entire dogs dead, while parents hurriedly withdrew their children and wards on hearing about the tragic incident.

Confirming the incident, traditional ruler of Nteje, Igwe Rowland Odegbo described the act as abomination in the community, assuring that justice would be served appropriately.
